About BugaboosCloset

Sales 4,842
On Etsy since 2012

Bugaboo's Closet is my creative outlet each and every day.

I bought a sewing machine out of the blue in 2010, having never used one before. Quickly I fell in love with sewing children's clothes. I never imagined that clothes would make my children happy, but they absolutely adore when I make them something new. The delight in my daughters' faces when I present them with a new dress to twirl in, or the excitement my son gets when he finds a new character fabric in my stash is what got me hooked. In November 2012, I decided to extend that joy to others by opening an Etsy shop.

The flexibility of running my own business fits in with my busy family's life. I work from home, on my own schedule, and I am still able to be present and available to my children.

I love to come up with new designs for appliqués, or show off a new character fabric for our popular lounge pants. This job keeps my creative juices always flowing. When I create something new, I can't wait to showcase it in my Etsy shop. I hope you'll love my designs as much as I do.

Additional policies and FAQs
**All children are different. We try our best to provide clothing that will fit, and carefully select our patterns, fabrics, and blank tees with this in mind. To keep our prices reasonable, we use a variety of brands of blank tees, and slight variations in fit and style may occur for that reason. If you are concerned, please contact us PRIOR to placing your order to see what we have in stock in the size that you need.

**Great effort goes into creating your items. The same level of effort should go into caring for your handmade item. Dresses and skirts will hold up year after year, when cared for properly. We recommend that they be washed in cold water and hung to dry for best results. Applique and Embroidered shirts should be washed INSIDE OUT in cold water, and laid flat to dry. Iron as needed on LOW.

**A note about Bugaboo's Closet appliqués: Each letter, shape, or design is hand-drawn, handcut, and machine stitched by me. We strive for our items to be unique and original, and try to avoid a mass-produced or computer generated look. Slight fraying may occur after lots of washing and wearing, and this just adds to the authenticity of your item.

**Pattern placement may vary on Made to Order items.
